R&D Series. You could call the fruity, spicy, malty, brown dunkle weiss a cousin to hefeweizen-style beers, but that’s like comparing banana bread to plain old whole wheat…One sip of this Bavarian-style brew and you’ll know it’s simply Redunkulous.

This unfiltered German-style dark wheat ale has prominent banana and clove aromas from the esters and phenols produced by its classic Bavarian yeast strain. The creamy mouthfeel of this beer is evident as it rolls across the tongue, complimenting the aroma with toasted malt and wheat flavors. This incredibly drinkable style of beer is celebrated in Germany by the liter.
